Am at work with splitting headache and can't remember what I can and can't take for a bit of relief.

Secretary will be going out on errands soon and I'm too lazy to go myself so hoping for a quick response guys.

you can take paracetamol....

solpadeine (has paracetamol, codeine and caffeine in) if really desperate and only occasionally.

Thanks, am almost squinting with pain above my left eye and I never ever normally get a headache.

co-codamol (codeine and paracetamol) is very safe in pregnancy and I've had to take it for migraines this pregnancy, it works a WHOLE lot better than just paracetamol.

Thanks Hockeymum,

Took some paracetomol but it only took the edge of it and I had to just wait until it wnet at tea time.

Will remember the co-codamol if it recurs
